What is one hair product you cannot live without?
I would have to say mine would be dry shampoo! I’m very simple with my hair and don’t use many other products, but my hair does get oily very quickly! I use dry shampoo more than I would like to admit.
There are only two things I don’t love about dry shampoo… the price and the ingredients! I hate paying the high prices for dry shampoo because I can literally go through a decent-sized can of dry shampoo in a week. Also, the ingredients in most beauty & hair care products are not good for our skin. So I decided… why not make my own!? And I did. I love this recipe. It is very simple with only 3 ingredients, it smells good, and it makes my hair look wonderful. AND it’s much cheaper & natural! Win-win for me.

This recipe makes a dry shampoo powder. You can make the dry shampoo, put it in a jar (this is what I do) and use a makeup brush to put it on your hair. Another good idea that I have seen people do is to use an old spice container and pour it onto your hair that way. Whichever method you prefer is fine, either way, the product works the same. This dry shampoo recipe works for both light and dark hair!
I will add links to the products I use to make it easier for you!
- 4 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon tumeric (for darker hair use 1 teaspoon tumeric)
- A few drops of the essential oil of your choice (I use lavender)
